Here’s a tip: Don’t steal

Jorge Soto, 20, was cited on suspicion of theft late Tuesday after he allegedly fled from the Hookah Lounge, 2830 North Ave., after stealing $43 from a tip jar at the restaurant, according to a police incident report.

Soto, who appeared intoxicated to Grand Junction police officers, told them he needed the money for a strip club.

But didn’t admit to stealing the money, the report said.
